When someone tells you to think of a vehicle that is considered safe, you would most likely be thinking about any Volvo vehicle or just the Volvo brand name After all, this brand has been marketing safety in all of its vehicles. But see, the times are changing and Volvo is not the only car maker that can create really safe vehicles.
Take for the example the 2009 Subaru Forester. This year, this ride has been able to receive the 2008 Top Safety Pick award which is given out by the Insurance Institue for Highway Safety (or IIHS). It is not easy winning this award because a car maker has to do a lot to be able to make sure that the vehicle they are making would have the right features that the IIHS has set.
So how did the 2009 Subaru Forester get the award then? Here is how.
To be able to take home the award, the 2009 Subaru Forester has been able to outbest all other vehicles in its own class. And this is with regards to total protection during crashes. And to be able to do that, Subaru sure had to make sure that the 2009 Subaru Forester had the best protection especially when it came to the front impact crash tests, side impact crash tests, and rear impact crash tests. The IIHS also requires that a vehicle must have the electronic stability control as a part of its features. Good for the 2009 Subaru Forester, Subaru has decided to totally work out this ride and make it a really safe ride.
Tom Doll is one of the top honchos of Subaru of America and on this he has mentioned that the company is very happy with what the 2009 Subaru Forester has received. After all, it is indeed a good sample of just what dedication the brand has in making safe vehicles.
